I decided on The Starry Night. It's a wonderful and iconic painting and instantly recognizable. I've always felt drawn to this painting, not only for it's beauty but also to its connection with mental illness and the fact that Van Gogh considered it a failure and didn't see it fit to be mailed off with the rest of his paintings from this time in order to save on postage.
In order to do it any kind of justice, I decided on 2 inch squares. 3,604 of them. I've already bought all the yarn I need and it's doing a wonderful job of keeping me distracted on my commute. I'm not sure how many squares I have done at this point. A few hundred probably. I think I might construct pieces of it and photograph them so I can see what it would look like when it's done.
